Peripheral veteran Mad Catz has been making inroads into game publishing since last year when they signed a deal with Harmonix to acquire the rights for Rock Band 3. Now they’ve taken the next step by bringing Damage Inc. Pacific Squadron WWII to the market.
 
The theory behind this move is sound: by having solid hardware to marry with the right software, Mad Catz is uniquely positioned to offer players a more absorbing gaming experience than your average publisher.
 
In this instance, Mad Catz has teamed up with the Australian-based studio Trickstar Games to make a flight combat game to sell alongside a dedicated flightstick. Damage Inc. comes in two forms: a Standard Edition with just the game (MSRP:  £39.99) and a Collector’s Edition which includes the Pacific AV8R FlightStick (£82.57).

Half of this package is great. The stick, made by Saitek, is well designed – both solid and attractive. Styled after a Second World War aircraft stick, it features a comfortable soft-rubber grip and sits well on either a table or your thigh. The downsides are it’s a little too light and not as precise as other high-end flightsticks, but it’s still a good piece of kit for its price range. It also definitely adds to the experience.
